Temple Seven was to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. (I'm still looking for the photos for this one- we took some but I can't remember what camera/memory-card they are on). This trip we wanted to be another family one. It's hard to get us together when both of my parents work, I worked and my little brother was going to school/band. Honestly, we were a little pessimistic about making it there on time. But I was confident we could do it and even said a little prayer that we could, without stressing or rushing, make it to the temple together on time. Well, work was super slow for me so they let me off early (so early that I had time to get get a hair cut first) and the work my dad was supposed to do couldn't get done until other coworkers finished their job, so he got off early too. We made it, no stress. It was a beautiful temple. I loved sitting in the chapel waiting to start, because the sun was setting on that side, and the way the frosted glass was situated, the sun was intensified. It made the room extremely bright and glorious. It was a great temple trip to have together.
I should mention in between here, that I went with my ward back to the Timpanogous temple which was fun to go back to since that's where I started. I went there on a Tuesday and my mom and I went to our eighth temple a couple days later.
Temple Eight was to the Provo Temple. I've been to that temple several times since I was going to school down in Provo, but this was the first time I went up the stairs instead of down to the baptistery.

The next post will be about Temple Nine which was not a typical temple trip, it was to the Brigham City Open house which was a fun experience.
